Water poof and tear proof film - available in rolls and sheets
Our films are similar to paper but gain their durability from being manufactured using polypropylene or polyester. This makes them water proof, grease proof and tear proof when used in conjunction with toner based or pigmented ink. They are ideal for technical drawings being used by engineers in the field but are equally good for posters and displays.
We offer a range of Kernow films:
Tearproof paper rolls are inherently more stable than standard inkjet and plain paper rolls. This is vital when printing long track sections as the paper isn’t susceptible to expansion or contraction and ensures accurate prints every time.
Quality isn’t impacted at all and all our papers are capable of producing stunning vibrant colour prints as well as line accurate mono prints. An exceptionally smooth finish makes them ideal for toner printers as the toner bonds perfectly every time.
Being both waterproof and tearproof, there is no need to laminate smaller print sizes, saving both time and money.
